Investor marketplace, Turning financial opportunities into climate impac

The challenge

The road from a great idea to a marketable product or service can be a long and bumpy one. With the help of EIT Climate-KIC a growing number of start-ups reach the stage in which their product or service has proven itself to the market. But money is needed to really scale up. Therefore, start-ups are always on the look-out for investors who know that sustainable products and services can create social as well as economic value.

The solution

The Investor Marketplaceprovides potential investors with access to the world’s largest clean-tech start-up network. The online platform reveals start-up opportunities within Europe and creates opportunities to get in touch with like-minded investors. The marketplace includes start-ups in various countries, sectors and stages of development.

EIT Climate-KIC’s start-up Black Bear Carbon recently attracted an extra investment of 11 million euros. The Investor Marketplace gives other start-ups the same kinds of opportunities.

The impact

The Investor Marketplace supports start-ups that make climate impact on various indicators (for instance, energy, greenhouse gas emissions and circularity).

EIT Climate-KIC’s role

EIT Climate-KIC launched theInvestor Marketplaceto help its start-ups attract investors and get to the next level of entrepreneurship.
